MAC - Mobile Artificial Consciousness. Any self-motivating machine intelligence designed to operate a body allowing it mobility.
Robo - Shorthand for RObot BOdy. Humans and MACs alike can pilot Robos.
This game is for all the fans of giant robot cartoons and live action shows who want to roleplay those kind of characters, but have found other systems too wargame-like. RoboMACs tries to have more of a dramatic, cinematic flavor to it, replacing hard numbers with general traits and 'hooks.' The rules are tilted toward combat between humanoid or animalform Robos, better capturing the feel of the genre. Vehicle combat rules are presented, including detailed rules for creation of totally nonhumanoid "Robos" (such as starships, bases and non-transforming aircraft.)
Character creation is useable for any kind of giant robot game from grim and gritty to implausibly silly; allowing for as many different campaigns as there are gamers.
In the world of the Exodus, explorers returns from the stars to free a humanity from the yoke of soulless computer intelligences...or throwbacks to a warlike era attempt to destroy the Utopia that Earth has become! Could it be both? Whatever the truth is, machines of war and alien technology threaten to destroy the prize both sides fight over!
Exodus is designed to have a wide variety of characters. Piloted Robos and RoboMACs, normal humans and superhumans (and aliens) all inhabit this universe. 154 Pages.
